    I think they have the download speeds that slow by design. Maybe I am just going crazy, but I feel they are doing it so we use wifi instead. I have full bars but yet will only change a percent every couple minutes.

Attached is a picture I took of a lake not far from where I live in Louisville. I love the reflection of the trees in the water...

    Where do I access the Beats audio? I can't seem to find it on the phone.
    Tou can't access beats until the phone detects an audio source besides speaker. Then your only option is to turn on or off

    This is BS!!! To begin with it took them 40 min to find my preordered phone and know they're telling me they're no longer giving me the 50 gift card for upgrading as advertised. Wtf!! Anyone else come across this problem with BB!??!?!?

    FYI, that icon allows for a quick switch between input devices. I use it to quickly switch to the Google Voice input option, which comes in handy in situations where typing isn't a good idea or convenient.

    My initial thoughts are thoughts of joy. I definitely see the difference in speed from my OG EVO. As others have stated, the screen wows. I love being able to disable some of the bloatware. Haven't used the camera yet but I will tomorrow. Phone is very thin and light. Only negatives for me so far is getting used to not having a menu button, and oily hand prints on the back upper half, and no case.

    Had a chance to get a TP case from BB, but I'm getting the Seidio Surface combo tomorrow as well as a 32 or 64gb card.

    I wish i had one right now to post my thoughts on the phone too! But I was unable to preorder the phone. So I'm just going to have to sit tight and hope I can get one at my local Sprint store at the mall(when available). Hopefully not that many people want one(or they have a lot in stock)... Anyway all your guy's first impressions make this phone seem just as good as im hoping it to be! hopefully it has better battery life than my ns4g which is really really bad.

    Okay, day (well half a day) one with my new evo.

    First thing the girl at BB opened the box and said she just wanted to hold it for a while lol. Went through and before i left she asked if she could hold it once more, wishing she saved her upgrade for this phone.

    BB had a few cases that i opted against but i did stop at 2 Sprint stores and one RS just to see if they had anything ANYTHING for the phone i might want. When i asked if they had any cases they (Sprint) said the phone aint even out yet. Then i showed him my phone He and the 3 customers in the store were blown away. First at the fact that i had it and second about the design and screen.

    So I got home and gave it a work out and i can say OMG lol I love this phone.

    So fast, screen (sigh) I stopped at several electronic store's basically just to flaunt my new phone and everyone took notice. Every person that seen the phone loved it. Then i turned on the screen and blew them away.

    So i'll run it for a day or two and then post a report but for now, today I LOVE THIS PHONE

    Sounds great to me, Id love to hear your opinion once you have had it a couple of days, I hope I am able to purchase the phone before schools over so I can also show it off.

    Jesus H, this phone. Wow. There is absolutely no comparison to the OG Evo. There's simply not.

    The only thing to improve is LTE, honestly. 3G isn't "fast" (although it's a bit quicker than on the OG Evo), WiFi speeds are nuts. Once LTE finishes getting set up, this phone will be a beast.

    hold the button all the way down for like 2 seconds

    No complaints as of yet....have to play around with the camera a little more as it has awesome functions but I've had some out of focus pictures, so got to figure out why.

    Seems like a huge jump from 3D to LTE....much bigger jump than OG EVO to 3D functionality wise. Battery seems to be holding strong given all I've loaded and had it doing all evening. Face unlock rocks.

    Physically I see nothing wrong with it. Thin and I could care less that the back is two designs.

    Music sounds louder out of the speaker.

    Overall very excited to run it through a full day tomorrow. Productivity will be at an annual low....which seems to always be around new phone time.

    Same problem. I couldn't download any apps on 3G.

    Bigger screen and a higher resolution makes the icon smaller.

    Every amazing thing said in this thread are so true. Screen and speed! The phone is very near perfect. The shinny cover makes the phone "pop" and not make it look like every other phone out there.

    There are just a couple negatives that I am sure I will get used to. No menu and no search buttons.

    LTE would make this phone unstoppable! I am so jealous of the markets that will have it soon that I almost want to move.

    Every thing is smaller when viewed from a higher resolution. This was most noticeable for me when I went from the OG EVO to the E3D. Not much change going from the E3D to the E4GLTE. Guess it's a first for you though, which is probably why it stands out to you.

    Completely agree here, when asked what new phone did I get today I stated "The new EVO". I was bothered slightly by the search button gone however I replaced it by adding google search onto the lower right of the home screen task bar. Also, by having the "Google Apps" shortcut widget allows a single step to access many apps quicker.

    I noticed Telenav was not preloaded but is available free from Google Play, I mostly use Google Nav anyway. I'm strongly considering a Car Dock for this.

    I know this is first day of ownership, well partial day anyway, but as with any new phone it's been filled with heavy use testing it out etc. Since full charge out of the box, I've been using it heavily on full brightness, LTE off, mostly WiFi with web browsing youtube/tuneinradio for the last 6+ hours. The battery is currently @ 60%.

    So far I personally haven't experienced any deal breakers. Sprint 3G data seems to perform better on this over my original EVO, LTE data will significantly improve the experience on this device. I'm happy with it today, should be even happier when LTE goes active.

    Thumbs up Re: First Impressions?

    I am thrilled.

    I got my EVO 4G LTE shortly after 7 PM this evening at Best Buy. Got home, put the charger on, waited 30 minutes, and then did the activation.

    For the past four hours, I have been enjoying this phone much more than I thought I would.

    The highlights:

    The screen is absolutely gorgeous. Stunningly gorgeous, in fact. Just wonderful.

    The phone is fast. Even after I filled it with apps, the thing was quick. It is also very sensitive on the screens, which I like.

    The wi-fi is very fast. Much faster than my OG EVO. Great speeds.

    Phone sound quality while making calls is excellent. No problems, and my friends whom I called said I was clear with a good volume.

    The lowlights:

    The shiny back is a horrible fingerprint magnet. So looking forward to a replacement or a cover.

    Lots of changes in Sense and I am having a hard learning curve trying to figure out where everything is.

    That's about it.

    I need a few more days to get it all worked out, but I am completely impressed.

    And, I will say, for the record, the extra 6-day wait was well worth it.

    A fantastic phone.

    No complaints about the phone, but the "menu" feature in ICS is a joke. They take away as much screen real estate in some apps to add a menu bar as you gain by having the bigger screen. The dedicated button would be nice to have again.

    First off....Absolutely love the phone!

    The speed of the phone doesn't blow me away. I had the gs2 for a short stint and I'd say processing speed is comparable. Switching from screens isn't blazing fast as I had expected. Even my Nexus a was almost as fast while navigating the phone. I'm not disappointed by any means, it just didn't amaze me in moving around in the device. However the fluidity of the movement is super smooth, nice transitions despite my expectations for speed. I'm sure without a doubt the developers will tweak to near perfection. we just gotta be patient and appreciative of their great work.

    Camera, Awesome!

    Screen, Beautiful, so clear and natural colors.

    Form factor, nice and sleek, much better than I originally thought prior to release.

    Battery life, from my short time with the new Evo, send to be very good, but only time will tell the truth.

    Final verdict....best phone I've owned. Its the complete package.

    Edit: As i spend more time with the camera, im actually disappointed, especially with all the sites giving GREAT reviews of the quality of the camera shots. The clarity of the pictures isn't even as good as my Nexus S let alone the SGS2. The sad part is that the camera is what convinced me to get the EVO LTE. But so far, this is one of my only gripes about the device.

    +1 to every great thing that's been said so far. I'm coming from an Optimus S that was running an alpha CM9 port. So I'm going to give stock Sense a fair shake for a few days before I pass judgment on the OS. The only thing I've changed is the keyboard - I'm just so used to swiftkey.
    The elephant in the room - multitasking. So far it's only been an issue with games. If I'm playing a game and get a text, answer the text and come back to the game through recent apps, the game reloads and I've lost my current progress. That may not happen with every game and there may be some adjustments that need to be made on my part with how I use the phone. This is the only nit I can pick so far, and it's definitely not the deal breaker some would have you believe that it is.

    Waking up to 99% battery after 8+ hours idle is a win. Otherwise so far so good. Only complaint is the dedicated battery button not working all the time and I'm not sure if that's a phone or case issue.

    Didn't get to start the activation process until 9pm last night, so haven't had many waking hours to play around. But everything I've seen so far screams "badass" - screen, speed, battery life, slimness, camera. Haven't been off WiFi yet, but I'd have to imagine 3G performance will be as good or better than my EVO3D.
